Abstract

Study on functions of Majelis taklim showed its new function as a medium of institutionalization of Muslim women leadership since this grass root organization fights to fulfill the requirement of male Islamic preachers for its regular meetings. The process of institutionalization is started by accepting female preachers from secular educational background but they have already trained as Islamic preachers through specific trainings on Islamic teaching to Islamic leadership. Generally, female preachers are the head of majelis taklim who plays significant roles in spreading Islamic teaching, organizing regular religious meetings, and managing the board of organization. By using the case study on 2 majelis taklim in Makassar, research results are the number of Muslim women elite increases promisingly, and institutionalization of Muslim women leadership. In turns, These bring advantages to such political parties because this new elite women are becoming the potent candidates of legislative member in which affect the votes of party in moment of legislative election.
